AUGUST 19 – SEPTEMBER 13, 2017
Art Room is pleased to announce its upcoming group exhibition SEVEN: FIBERS, representing the work of local and regional artists, including Sheryl Anaya, Taylor Barnes, Molly Beaufait, Jennifer Cummings, Casey Galloway, and Rebecca Shewmaker.
SEVEN: FIBERS features six female fiber artists who focus on materials, methodologies, and manual labor as part of the works' significances. Through the delicate weaving, sewing, and construction of fabrics, paper, thread, and yarn, the artists re-contextualize domestic, functional forms into two and three-dimensional works of art that exhibit significant meaning and prioritize aesthetic value over utility. As the artists explore the tactile fiber art medium, they prolifically examine themes of the female body, peace within the landscape, and the connection between the artist’s hand and materials.
